Blogger Blogs and the Widgeo Counter

We're seeing a few reports this weekend about blogs freezing when loading, with the mysterious address "http://0.0.0.0/" (and the precise text in this address varies from report to report), showing in the browser status bar.

Some bloggers have discovered that this is caused by the presence of the Widgeo counter being installed. Remove Widgeo, and the problem goes away. Find another visitor counter, that's more reliable.

If you're seeing this mysterious symptom in your blog, and Widgeo is not involved, diagnose your recent changes. Then, let us know what you diagnosed as the cause, in your case. Practice peer support.

that means when u will add a code from widgeo no mater if is a counter or something people what visit u blog will have pop ups. u blog will look cheap and not safe , and u will look not like a serios blogger.. i am on blogger are something like 3 months, im new but i stop to use thing from them after first week whit blogger. sometimes things like counters slow the blog speed, never stop to download the page and i belive some thing are smart if they know u ip, if u give the ip , u will not see what do.
